Popular Sufi and Bollywood playback singer Harshdeep Kaur on Friday said that “hard work is the only way to retain instant success”.
Kaur, who won the title of ‘Sufi Ke Sultan’ in reality show ‘Junoon Kuch Kar Dikhane Ka’ and later MTV Video Gaga Contest in 2001, was in the city to perform at a live concert at Lodhi Club on Friday evening.
Talking to Newsline, she said, “It is not easy to maintain the successful ride after getting famous overnight by winning a reality show. You should not go easy and fizzle out, thinking it to be an ultimate success. The real struggle starts after winning a show and looking for work.”
Other than Sufi music, Kaur is known for some popular numbers such as Kattiya Karun from Rockstar, Heer from Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Kabira from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and others.
Hailing from a Delhi-based Sikh family, Kaur said that “working with A R Rahman was her dream which came true as she performed with him and learnt a lot”.
She will now be lending her voice to a track in the coming Punjabi film Dil Vil Pyaar Vyaar by Gurdas Maan. “I am also working on an independent track composed by me. This will be out by June,” she said. “Being a Punjabi and fluent in Punjabi language has earned brownie points for me as the language is in great demand in Hindi films now,” she added.
